Healthy Families, Healthy Communities

  • Open Enrollment for health insurance coverage began November 1st and goes through January 31st, 2016. During this time, Americans will have the chance to go online and, with a few clicks on, find insurance companies competing for their business.
  • 17.6 million Americans have gained coverage since the introduction of the Affordable Care Act. Let’s help the 10.5 million remaining uninsured #GetCovered.
